My Life Changed Twenty Years Ago Today
Twenty years ago, a bundle of joy entered the world. That’s right. My baby girl, Lauren.
It just doesn’t seem right that I’ve been a dad for that long. I’m just not old enough, you know.
This little girl who was born twenty years ago is growing into an incredible young woman. She’s a junior in college and that just doesn’t seem possible.
We watched some videos on VHS a year or two ago. In one of them, we asked Lauren what she was going to be when she grew up. Without missing a beat, she, with the sureness you can only find in a child, that she was going to work in a hospital.
Sure enough, she’s in nursing school now and doing well.
I don’t brag on my family in this space very often. I hope that you will indulge me this one time.
Lauren is the first of my two children to no longer be a teenager. I couldn’t be more proud who she is and who she is growing into.
Happy birthday, Lauren. I love you
